I have my grandfather's grandfather clock. It is about 8'

Customer Question

I have my grandfather's grandfather clock. It is about 8' tall, has a round porcilean face with minute and hour hands and Roman numerals. It is all wood, maybe oak, and the base tapers slightly at the bottom. My grandfather gathered antiques from Europe, mostly France in the 1920's for his large, French style house.
Thank you. Katherine

Hello Katherine,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

We need to try to find out the clock's maker. There should be some identifying information on the back of the actual clock and on the movement itself.

Is the clock working? How does it work - pendulum? Spring?
